Quinoa Spaghetti with Garlicky Greens and Tomatoes

Quinoa Spaghetti with Garlicky Greens and Tomatoes - a light, gluten free pasta dish your whole family will LOVE. So fresh and light. Recipe via

For the most part, my family has been eating whole grain pasta for as long as I can remember (which translates since having kids, lol). I got hooked on whole grains right after my son was born when I was trying to lose baby weight while following South Beach Diet. South Beach really got me in a healthier frame of mind when it came to eating well, always making sure to include whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies and lean proteins into my daily diet. Eating this way eventually just became my lifestyle.

Lucky for my family, since I do most of the cooking, it’s their lifestyle too. 🙂
